This week’s photo, taken March 7, 2015 from the Edmonds Pier in Edmonds, WA, features last week’s species, PIGEON GUILLEMOT, this time viewed right side up.
Since last September, I’ve been one of two-dozen people participating in Seattle Audubon’s 2014 – 2015 Master Birder Program, a comprehensive study of the birds of Washington state. Twice a week, we attend evening lectures, and we also frequently travel to various areas of the state to see in person some of the fabulous birds that we discuss in class. It’s an education-for-service program, so each participant is expected to volunteer their time to any of the numerous environmental projects offered by Seattle Audubon.

I think it would be great if such a program were offered in every state (or in whatever region of the world you live). Please let me know if such a program already exists where you reside.
